Working on this painting this morning, adding varying depths of blue and black, here and there, in crevices and ridges and along the edges of textured matte expanses, I felt very strongly trying to force in any degree of red, or even pink, would just not work for me.

Bottomline, this painting, Dawn, is done!

Decided, with no red or pink, my alternate title I mentioned my previous post, Dawn of Desire, would’ve been “way” off, lol!

I printed my sig onto the bottom left of each panel pic here ’cause, though I did paint it on each panel, in a mix of blue and black, I still might put a highlight line or two to denote the physical sigs. The backs of each panel will be signed, dated, and notated as to which panel is left, right, etc.

Only thing I’m really playing with right now, but ran out of time preparing pics to audition at a new gallery just west of Austin, is to put a black frame around each panel. I did hold up an 18×24 black frame to each, and it really makes them stand out. But I need to pull a 2nd black frame from another painting and place them round each to see if it’ll work or not. Maybe tomorrow or next day, depending on tired I am when I get back from the near Hill Country to the new gallery 😊

Definitely hope to come back with some good news from out west of us here 🙏

Stay well everyone! keep plucking, lol! ☺️ 💕

  1. “Dawn!” It’s terrific! I’ll bet the texture in person is stunning – WOW! And I really like how you used the blues and blacks. 👏👏👏👏👏🥰
